It’s the first week of summer and former army brat Jake Ballard is spending it alone at his uncle’s cottage while his mom gets treatment for PTSD.

Jake's boring day gets flipped upside down when a beautiful stranger asks him to help play a prank on her friends. But when an angry crime boss turns up at the cottage the next morning, Jake is sure of two things: the night before was a big mistake, and that girl was no prankster. And she is nowhere to be found.

Jake has twenty-four hours to return the stolen goods...or else. He has no other choice but to find the girl—and hopefully not find himself in any more trouble than he’s already in.

The epub edition of this title is fully accessible.

“A teenage boy inadvertently crosses dangerous people in this pulse-pounding thriller…Short chapters and thrilling action scenes render this book compulsively readable, while the dialogue is realistic and snappy...A quick, engrossing pick that’s ideal for reluctant readers.”
